    This is just a note to tell you how Kline, I, and all those that faithfully attend Callis Grove Camp certainly appreciate the wonderful job you did on the Callis Grove Camp article. It was very timely as just before the camp started. It took lots of time gathering the info although we know you personally knew lots of info about the old camp.

  • Frankfort offers many educational opportunities

    While the classroom experience for Kentucky students invariably changes from decade to decade, there is still one constant that binds one generation to the next: A field trip to the state capital.

    Thousands of children make the trek each year, seeing such common sites as the larger-than-life statue of President Lincoln in the Capitol Rotunda and, just a few miles away, the Old State Capitol’s self-supporting staircase, which for more than 180 years has been anchored by a well-placed keystone.

  • Charitable giving in Kentucky

    Winston Churchill once famously remarked that we make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.

    That sense of charity has defined our country from the beginning, and even when times are tough, we don’t hesitate to reach out and help.

    Consider a report early this year by the federal Bureau of Labor Statistics, which said that nearly 63 million Americans volunteered at least once last year, with each spending 52 hours on average serving others.

  • Kentucky an environmentally adept leader

    When it comes to being “green,” Kentucky is taking a leading role in proving that, environmentally speaking, less is really more.

    Our recycling rate, for example, has doubled over the last decade, and in 2008, we passed the national average for the first time. Now, nearly a third of our recyclable materials – such things as aluminum, plastic, glass and paper – are being re-used rather than shipped off to the landfill. Altogether, it amounts to about two million tons annually that are being saved.

  • What’s up with all the ‘W’s on the Milton-Madison Bridge?

    Recently I have heard some rumblings about a contest to name the new version of the Milton-Madison Bridge.

    We’ve always called the current Milton-Madison Bridge the “Milton-Madison Bridge.”

    That is, unless you are a died-in-the-wool Indiana resident who hates anything blue and white or anything associated with Kentucky and the proliferation of Wildcat memorabilia everywhere. THOSE people insist on calling it the “Madison-Milton Bridge.”
